Placemaking Program

The placemaking program grants $200,000 (approximately $50,000 in each town) to smaller communities to deliver projects that are at the top of the community’s wish list.

Projects are the direct result of thorough consultation and collaboration with the communities and will help to improve liveability, contribute to health, happiness and wellbeing, and visitor attraction to the towns.

2019/20 Projects

The projects for 2019/20 are currently in the community consultation phase.

Upcoming community meetings have been scheduled to discuss ideas. All welcome, no RSVP required.
